Testimonial for Alicia Power CD(DONA)

I wasn't exactly sure how a doula would help but hired Alicia based on hearing from people how helpful a doula would be. I could not be more grateful that I did! I'm not super crunchy and chose Alicia because she seemed really neutral and evidence based in her approach. 

Alicia was amazing throughout the process. I didn't take any sort of birthing class and Alicia walked me through everything that I could expect, decisions I would need to make, managing pain, etc. I felt way more informed and empowered as a result of our first meeting. 

At 36 weeks, I found out I'd need an induction (something I was really anxious about) at 37 weeks due to gestational hypertension. I texted Alicia right away and she gave me questions to ask my doctor and came to my home a few days later to help me process this news as well as my options for navigating the process. At the hospital, she was amazing with helping comfort me, making the environment more comfortable with music, a heating pad, massages, aromatherapy, etc. I never would have thought of all of that.

Following my birth, Alicia checked in regularly on me and my baby who was in the NICU. She also provided me with advice and resources postpartum and even brought me homemade lactation cookies.

Alicia really helped me have a more positive and enjoyable birth experience even amid some stressful  changes to the birth I hoped to have.
I would highly advise anyone to use a doula and if Alicia is available, to hire her!
